Returning with the third single from their forthcoming new record 'Harm’s Way', Toronto based power-pop duo Ducks Ltd. recently unveiled the glistening Train Full of Gasoline. A real joyous effort, the tracks jangly guitar layers and rolling percussion truly hit the sweet spot of hypnotic songwriting as the pair hit another sold home run through its infectious deliverance. “The jumping off point for this song was a friend telling me about the Lac Megantic rail disaster in Quebec. A 73 car train full of crude oil was left unattended and rolled down a hill before derailing and exploding in a town. I read about it a bunch, and to my understanding it was a scenario where a bunch of small errors built up and compounded each other, with the result being a catastrophe out of proportion with any of the individual failures that precipitated it,” explains singer/lyricist Tom McGreevy of the track, which features backing vocals from Ratboys’ Julia Steiner and Moontype’s Margaret McCarthy, as well as Ratboys’ Marcus Nuccio on drums. “The song is about self destructive patterns. How if you try to ignore or minimize issues in your life they can manifest in places you don't expect.” Take a listen below.

The pair's second album Harm's Way will be out February 9th via Carpark Records.
